DUSTERS

it’s not exactly a sweater and it’s not a coat, it’s somewhere in the middle and my latest obsession. i guess we could call it the california coat because it’s the perfect light layer but it’s a transitional piece for all areas of the country, cold and warm. traditionally, they were created to protect a rider from trail dust while on their horse but they’re now part of mainstream fashion. the best thing about the duster is that it’s dramatic due to the length and layers of fabric but it’s cozy and easy to throw on over everything. you’ll notice that most of the outfits you see them paired with are really simple, jeans and t-shirts, plain dresses, neutrals, etc. but with the addition of the long layer on top it becomes instantly chic. take a look at the examples below for proof. – joanie

when purchasing your own there are a few things to keep in mind. if you’re used to buying things that are fitted this may feel strange to you since most of them are oversized. one area to pay attention to is the shoulders, your shoulders will be the only place of structure and fit so you’ll want to make sure the duster fits you well here, framing your shoulders to give some shape to the jacket. the second thing is that they will often come with waist ties or buttons but it’s my belief that they are best left open. i’m not opposed to a tight tie at your true waist, where the fabric pulls in tightly in folds but once you add buttons, it all becomes too shapeless. in a lot of instances, the reason the duster works is because it’s paired with slimmer fitting pieces below, giving the body some shape.

    I am ADDICTED to this textured grey one. Morning (as a robe), day (with my outfit out and about), and night (by the wood stove in the evening). With slim piece beneath it totally manages to look chic despite being soooooo comfy!
